We provide group piano lessons in an after school setting and are seeking an individual with a foundation in music theory to serve on our team as a Music Theory Assistant. This role helps guide K-5 students (and occasional, junior high students ) through music theory workbook activities and hands-on learning experiences. If you have experience working with children, but lack the music theory skills, we are willing to train the right individual.
Music Theory Assistants guide children through music theory fundamentals in a group lesson setting. Our after-school program runs from September 2019 - May 2020. Each group lesson is 30-minutes in duration, with 5 students per lesson. Our Music Theory Assistants are assigned to specific schools throughout the school year. Our schools range from having 3-6 group lessons back to back. Music Theory Assistants support the Lead Piano Instructor by helping teach music theory principles from the student workbooks, music-focused games and activities. Music Theory Assistants lead the group activities, as the Lead Piano Instructor takes turns to work with each child one-to-one at the piano; guiding them as they play their lesson book assignments.
Our piano students range from beginner to intermediate in skill-level. We are seeking Music Theory Assistants that can commit to 2 afternoons per week.
